I had a dream last night
You and me in the warm sunlight
You smiled as you watched me dance
I sang a song and you clapped your hands
And we laughed, and laughed, and time stood still
I snapped back into a memory
You watched as he yelled at me
I saw a tear on your face
You turned your head and wouldn’t meet my gaze
And we cried, and cried, and time stood still. For me.
Here now, in reality
You can’t even look at me
We talk only pleasantries
In your own world of make believe
And my heart, it aches, to hear from you
But here we stand
Side by side and yet miles apart
And though I long
I know you’ll never fill my heart
I am whole now
I can’t wait for you
Because time stands still no more
Isn’t life just a fragile thing?
We must hold it carefully
It’s all made up of yesterdays
Future seeming so far away
And we watch, we watch, as time goes by
Do you ever recreate?
Ever wish that it wasn’t too late?
Do you go back and meet my eyes?
Grab my hand and sacrifice?
Do you ever put an end
To the sickness that crept in?
Ever wonder what would have been?
What would have been?
Isn’t life so delicate?
Like handful of falling sand
But I still think it’s beautiful
And you know I’m going to spend it all
And I’ll live, and love, ‘till there’s no more. For me.
